Unfortunately, this does not suppress generation of index references
in the exported output. Here is a snippet of the -div.html file
generated by the example you provided:

<div class="registerlocation index" href="#aut-1"
onclick="location.href=&apos;#aut-1&apos;"><!--empty--></div>Thus,
I came to the conclusion that the designer of a new system must not
only be the implementer and first large--scale user; the designer
should also write the first user manual.

and a snip of the output with the default css:

Thus the request for a (simple) mechanism to redefine or disable
standard commands. There are commands other than \index that might
also benefit from similar treatment.


\def\MyIndex#1{\index{#1}}

is one route.

Another might be

\let\index\gobbleoneargument

Alan


This would work if \index took one argument, but it takes as well an optional argument preceding the required argument, and so these fail.


The best solution would seem to be one which does not require knowledge of the number of required and optional arguments, but that might be a stretch.

That is why I asked for help.
